| Hi all. I feel privileged to be a part of this board. I was very impressed with the amount of materials available, and have been drawing on them even before I quit. As a matter of fact, I was motivated to move up my quit date, so I could join sooner. November 26 was the date, and now I am nicotine free. I was feeling great until the last couple of days, been physically hurting, nerves on edge, crabby as can be. And I know this is normal, I just can't wait for it to go away. I know the physical part of the withdrawal is over, but what is it that I am feeling now, a week into my quit? |
My history - I quit 14 years (wanted to have children) and did. And then one of my lovely kids became a teenager, and brought home cigarettes - and I had the junkie thinking, only one, what's the big deal, I quit all these years. So many aids today to help people quit. And here I sit, 6 years later, and several quit attempts later! It is a big deal. I never want to face withdrawal again. And I know that time does not make you exempt from the addiction. The only way to survive, is one day at a time, without ever taking even one puff!
So this is my mantra. I look forward to your support, as well as supporting you in your quits.
